      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

So I go out in search of some more of the nice perch I have been getting. I have thousands in GPS equipment, the best rods I can get my hands on, all sorts of perch lures, perch plastics and even the Marcum Camera to watch the perch. I enter in the super secret waypoint called "perch town" and off I go...then I get stuck. I have electronics, rods, reels, underwater cameras, even the digital camera to take some pictures of the perch in "perchtown" but do you think I would have a shovel?

So I am stuck and awaiting to be rescued from middle of nowhere, might as well drill a hole and fish while I wait. Wouldn't you know it I land on the crappie mother load? confused.gif I have fish on the ice, fish in the bucket, I'm trying to keep fish from flopping back into the hole while I am catching another...but I still have no shovel and I am still stranded.

Finaly my rescue squad arrives, backs up to my truck and gets stuck...would you think he had a shovel? So now I am three hours into my perch fishing trip and I have a limit of crappies (not the targeted perch)flopping in a bag while I am taking turns digging out a truck with a ice skimmer and the top of a Weber grill. crazy.gif

I think I might have to stick with crappies and pike, this perch fishing is brutal. laugh.gif

I've seen the ice skimmer used, but the lid of a weber grill?

You don't have a shovel, but you're prepared incase a picnic breaks out in the middle of Crappietown, USA.

Why didn't you use the frozen hotdogs for traction?

The bad ice is where most of the crappies are coming from.

By bad, we usually think of rough but I think if you get stuck that qualifies as 'bad' ice

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
